This year, our new-look Annual Report focuses on the voices of Army families to show the impact our work has had. Using case studies, we outline the positive change that has been made to their lives through our important work.
The individual case studies in the report reflect that life as an Army family, while bringing opportunities and excitement, can also often bring challenges. Most Army families continue to move every few years, including to and from overseas locations, and to live in Service Family Accommodation. Maintaining family life in these circumstances is a priority, and the voices in this report reflect the support we offer families to do this.
Our successes include:
- expanding our support for spouses, partners and family members by developing Forces Families Jobs with the other families’ federations, an exciting new employment and training platform, which launches on 17 September;
- representing families at a parliamentary level, talking to the Secretary of State, ministers and MPs;
- increasing our footprint in the south to better support the families arriving back from Germany as part of the rebasing.
Our Annual Report for 2018/19 is out now. Have a read and find out more about the successes we have achieved for Army families.
